Would love to see Bisping/Jacare for the next title shot after Weidman/Machida.
I agree, but I've seen a lot of people (Mainly Bisping Haters) going on like Kennedy is making waves in the MW division and it just isnt true. The guy has beaten literally nobody of note at MW and his current streak are 3 guys who arent even top 20s.

I don't even see this being even remotely competitive.

Another thing I'll like about this fight is Bisping is generally well received in Canada, and I think he liked that. Especially against another 'American Hero' (though Brian was a damn lot more likeable).

See the Brian Stann fight and Bisping's Q&A he did there. It's a really good watch. Hope he does another, Bisping's a funny guy.

Oh, and he go'in whopp dat ass.

Kennedy is tough. He has solid wrestling, decent subs, a good chin, and some underrated power. I think he'll be a decent test for Bisping.

You could also argue that Bisping doesn't have the best resume either. He doesn't have a single top ten win or a win against an active UFC Middleweight. Still, he's beaten everyone else they've put in front of him and his only losses are to former champions or title challengers, and he was very competitive with Evans, Wanderlei, and Chael. Nothing to be ashamed of.

I don't think Kennedy's wrestling is enough to threaten Bisping. Kennedy's top game is good but not good enough to hold Bisping down. Technically speaking Bisping is light years ahead of Kennedy and has a major advantage in speed and cardio.

Bisping will win, but Kennedy is improving real well...dunno how a Bidsp[ing coming off of a loooong lay-off will look against him.

I'm hoping Bisping wins this, since I truly HATE Kennedy... but I'm not so sure he will if he gets clipped with something, like he always seem to get.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

Before anyone brings up Bisping's "pillow fists" too much, let me leave this here...

Didn't realize Franklin had so many.


1. BJ "The Prodigy" Penn
2. Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
3. George "Rush" St Pierre

Go Franklin!

Not knocking Bisping here but when people say he's pillow fisted I think they're saying he doesn't have raw KO power, which he doesn't. He's a volume finisher who lands blows until the fight is stopped, usually because he's exhausted his opponents or overwhelmed them with volume strikes.

I started liking Bisping more after his devastating loss to Hendo. He was a complete dick back there and definitely learned a lesson. He is a funny dude and technical fighter and I'll be rooting for him big time against Kennedy.
